to scotland yard officers by the news of the world. could that be construed as an illegal foreign payment under the foreign corrupt practices act. >> the way this is unfolding thus far nothing seems like it's beyond the realm of possibility. robert, let me follow up with you on something that michael raised. it's unproven. it's a single allegation. everybody wants to know whether 9/11 victims were hacked. here's what the spokeswoman for news corp. told "the wall street journal" about the justice department's investigation, we have not seen any evidence to suggest there was any hacking of 9/11 victim phones nor has any one corroborated clearly what are very serious allegations. the story arose when an unidentified person speculated to the "daily mirror" if that happened. that paper printed the anonymous speculation which has mushroomed into the broader media with no substantiation. that's true, but you think about the milly dowler case where the 13-year-old teenager has been murdered and her voice mail is hacked, one wonders if that will be proven. >> that's true. michael is right to say i
